Opener lure line-up

10 posts in this topic

What's everyone going to have tied on to use on opener next weekend? Or this weekend if you're fishing in WI

Here's my line-up for next weekend on Mille Lacs

1. Two jerkbaits tied on. Maybe 3 :-)

2. Drop shot

3. Keitech swimbait

4. Shakeyhead craw or tube

5. Squarebill crank or DT6

6. Spinnerbait

7. Possibly topwater :-)

8. Football jig

I will be on Leech, most likely.

Shadow Rap
Booyah Pad Crasher
Outkast swim jig with various trailers...usually start with a Havoc Grass Pig 
Craw tube 
Outkast RTX jig w/Pit Boss trailer
Drop shot with KVD Dream Shot

I'm sure I will have 8 other rods rigged, but the above is what I will use most. I will probably throw a gold Jawbreaker around old rice and reeds a little too. That has been stupidly effective most openers for me, to the point where I don't know why I don't throw it more.

The Jawbreaker eh? I haven't thrown that lure in many many years, in fact I don't have any in my box anymore. I used to always joke about how it was weedless but also fishless as I never caught anything but Dogfish on them at my cabin.

I haven't thrown it as much for the last few years, but that's not because it doesn't produce. I have had some amaaaaaaazing days on Leech with it. Early in the season up to the point where rice starts laying flat on the surface, it's as good as anything you can throw on lakes with wild rice.

If I make it out on the MN opener, SouthWestern Lake:

Chatterbait/Spinnerbait

T-rigged Yum Dinger

T-rigged worm or lizard

Swim Jig

Square bill/Lipless

Jig and Beaver

Jig Worm if nothing shallow and the deeper weeds are up.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
